Since marrying Prince William the Duchess of Cambridge has become renowned worldwide as a style icon.

Although she makes it look effortless, reportedly Kate Middleton is feeling the strain of constantly having to look picture perfect.

According to sources at Vanity Fair, the 30-year-old royal has admitted to feeling "stressed" by the huge pressure to look good.

Adjusting to life in the public eye is no easy task, and Kate always looks groomed to perfection, whether wearing an Alexander McQueen dress, an outfit from high street chain Zara, or the official Team GB polo shirt.

But it appears that the constant scrutiny combined with her royal responsibilities is leaving the Duchess exhausted.
At Christmas it was reported that Kate had to change her outfit a colossal five times in the same day in order to celebrate her first Christmas with the Queen at Sandringham.
Royal etiquette expert Jean Broke-Smith explained to Grazia: "Kate will need a casual outfit for breakfast, a smart outfit - and a hat - for the morning church service, a dress for lunch, a cocktail dress for early evening drinks and a full-length dress for the evening meal."
She added: "The golden rule is nothing too short, too revealing or too gaudy."
Despite feeling the strain, the British royal has made it into Vanity Fair's annual International Best-Dressed List and graces the cover alongside Oscar-nominated actress Jessica Chastain.
